The all-new Emu story…

Emu is one of the best-known brands in British knitting, a family favourite for generations of knitters and crocheters since 1941. The entire Emu range has now been reworked and relaunched with an ever-growing portfolio of modern yarns that offer exceptional quality and value for money.

The Emu Classic range - including DK, Aran, Chunky and Super Chunky weights - has been curated by a team who have sourced some of the most famous yarn names in British knitting. For the last few years, this team has been focused on sourcing the all-new Emu yarn ranges, ensuring that every Emu yarn is at least the equal of the best-known equivalent products available. Just read the reviews, scores of knitters and crocheters have made the switch to Emu and will tell you all about the premium handle, the softness and the quality - the equivalent and better of far more expensive alternatives!

Why switch to Emu? The simple answer is exceptional quality and value for money. It’s no trade-secret to know that all Emu yarn ranges have been sourced directly from some of the finest spinners across the globe. The Emu team have ensured that the fibres used in creating every ball of yarn are of the highest quality and that the spinning processes are to their exacting specification. And going direct means that Emu ensure their prices offer the very best value for money!

For a brand renowned for its quality, colour range and, of course, its softness, the Emu Classic, Treasure, Cotton and Funfair ranges are true modern classics in their own right, continuing a spinning tradition that goes back over 80 years.
